After an unsuccessful trial at Aston Villa while still a schoolboy at Rusea's High, former schoolboy star, Brian Brown, said Harbour View was what he needed to build himself up.
This Brown told The Gleaner on Sunday after scoring his team's second goal in their 2-1 win over Arnett Gardens, as Harbour View recorded their second win from five starts to improve their standing to seventh.
"To come to Harbour View is the dream of most players in the Premier League. It is a very professional club. They have things in place to ensure that players do well and that is what I really needed at the time," said Brown, who has had a hand in three of Harbour View's four goals so far this season, scoring twice and forcing an own goal with the other.
Harbour View led through a defender's goal at the 47th minute, while Vishunal Harris equalised for Arnett at the 74th. Brown found the winner at the 80th minute.
"At Montego Bay United, I was not getting the time on the field that I needed to improve my game and I needed games, so Harbour View was the place for me and I am loving it here," the man from St James added.
Brown, who fired Harbour View to their first win of the season - a 1-0 win over Rivoli and repeated the feat with Sunday's performance - said one of the best things about his new home is the coach's belief in him.
"I am doing good so far. I just need to finish more chances so the team can win more, but it is important that the coach believes in me.
COACH BELIEVES IN ME
"I feel great that the coach believes in me. I have been finishing well in training and as long as I keep doing this I will be playing, the coach has told me," added the player who is looking to be a part of the national set-up in the near future.
What Brown believes will take him there is more goals.
"I want to keep scoring goals, and as long I do that, I will keep opening doors for myself and the club, as well as I try to get better in this game and even earn the opportunity to play abroad and more.
"I would love to be in the national team and I am working hard to making it happen and looking for it," said the player who has set himself a target of 15 goals for the season.
Brown also said he likes what he sees of the current national coach and believes that he will reward performance.
"The new coach, I think, will improve my chances. He seems to know talent. I am talented and if I get the chance, I know I will perform," Brown declared.
